The Pleasanton Council met Monday night and Mayor Mike Frisbie opened the meeting telling the council he had not made any decision on who he would appoint to fill Joe Whitaker’s vacated council seat.

City Administrator Teresa Whitaker asked the council to approve two executive sessions; the first for five minutes for non-elected personnel dealing with employee performance and the second for 10 minutes for employee performance with Police Chief Tristan Snyder included. No action was taken from either session.

Becky Grant addressed the council concerning her commercial building, see related story in this edition.

The former Olive’s Hope building was sold with profit from the sale going in a check for $6,100 from Brandon McGinnis to former Olive’s Hope owner Sandy Atkisson; see related story in this edition.

Joe and Linda Pointer deeded 8.6 acres to the city; see related story in this edition.

Whitaker told the council that they are having “hefty issues” with the computer server the city uses and presented a bid for $13,658 to replace it, and other parts, from Jayhawk Computer. No decision was made.

Police Chief Tristan Snyder reported heavy activity in 2022, half of which he covered himself as the city had not been able to hire another officer. He said he has one officer in school and another ready to start; a new hire is on the street training.

Whitaker said FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) flood maps are out and anyone in a flood zone will receive a letter from FEMA concerning an open house scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 26 from 2 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. at Labette Bank, 501 E. Market St., La Cygne.

Officials from the Division of Water Resources and others will be on hand to answer questions.
